"So great is the worth of Dostoevsky that to have produced him is by itself sufficient justification for the existence of the Russian people in the world." This is Nikolai Berdyaev's assessment of Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881), the great Russian novelist, religious thinker, and prophet. Berdyaev's aim in this book is to examine Dostoevsky's spiritual side, to explore in all its depth the way in which Dostoevsky perceived the universe and to reconstruct out of these elements his entire world-view. Dostoevsky shows us new worlds, worlds in motion, by which alone human destinies can be made intelligible; and these worlds and these destinies can only be grasped by a spiritual analysis. Berdyaev provides such an analysis.
